a small town wakes up to clang of garbage bins
are you listening?
followed by a faint stench and an engine running
out with the old and in with the new, papers,glass
plastic and meat, vegetable juices and memories
that don't matter
yesterday's lunch, last week's news on wars, floods,
and money you won't ever again see, tv star affairs
weeklies and used toilet wipes, cigarette ashes
amazon cartons, old bills, the too much baggage
we can't afford to carry ourselves , all mush
inside that turning belly and then off to their burrial site
where birds and decay never tire_

Oooh, I love this shot. And your prose is perfect -- love the line "that turning belly." Nice.

And by the way, I've got two Amazon cartons outside my door right now (better go throw 'em away.) Ha.

I'm always attracted to your work.

A poem with grit and honesty. The lines, "the too much baggage
we can't afford to carry ourselves," remind me of a trip to London I took last month, I felt a fool dragging my luggage through subway stations and trains. Next time, I'm traveling lighter.
